The Grinch Who Stole Halloween

If you were in Caracas last night, you probably didn't see too many costume parties or kids dressed as ghosts.

The nationalist-socialist Hugo Chavez, Fidel's Apprentice, urged Venezuelan parents not to let their children participate in Halloween. The foreign custom, he says, is part of the U.S. culture of terror "putting fear into other nations, putting fear into their own people."

There were also pumpkins

There were also pumpkins with anti-Chavez decorations going up all over the city. I suspect Hugo's more afraid of free speech than the jack-o-lantern...

It is amusing to see Chavez

It is amusing to see Chavez venting about Halloween...just like Phelps like loons. :wall:
